What you need to know:

  • Dr Achola Pala Okeyo was an undergraduate contemporary of mine in Dar es Salaam. 
  • We both fell in love, not with each other, but with the city called “Haven of Peace” and the Tanzanian/Swahili way of life of the time.

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day, and we will all be doing our best to let our mothers know how much we appreciate them. I am not short these days of inspiring models of East African women’s achievement, and this week is no different. With a Chief Justice Designate and a dazzling state visit, Kenyans hardly need reminding of the arrival of the day of our sisters and mothers.
